Mold Q&A: How Did Mold Get in My Home?
For many homeowners, the last thing they expect to find is mold growing somewhere in their home. Especially if you don’t have much interaction with mold, this can be concerning and raise many questions. But how does mold get into your home, exactly? That’s what we’re here to explain.
How Did Mold Get in My Home?
The truth is one that most people don’t want to hear—mold has always been in your home. In fact, there are always at least a few spores everywhere, including your home. But because they are microscopic and are usually in low concentrations, they don’t cause problems.
Mold spores, however, can begin to grow once they come into contact with moisture. Once these spores mature, they will in turn release more spores, and the cycle will continue while food and moisture are present. As a result, this will lead to a higher concentration of spores, which is when you might notice health effects.
In order to avoid this growth, it’s essential that you keep your indoor humidity levels low and address any moisture issues!
